A worker of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) was hacked to death in Mambaram in the district on Monday morning, allegedly by members of the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), the political wing of Islamist outfit Popular Front of India.

As per a Times Now report, the RSS worker, identified as 27-year-old Sanjith was attacked by SDPI goons when he was going on a motorcycle with his wife at 9 am today.

Even though Sanjith was immediately rushed to the nearby hospital, he succumbed to his injuries.

An investigation has been launched to trace the accused who fled the scene after the incident, the police said.

The BJP alleged that the assailants followed Sanjith, hailing from Elappully, in a vehicle, hit his two-wheeler and when he fell down they hacked him to death in front of his wife.

Condemning the killing of the RSS worker, BJP state president K Surendran alleged it was a 'planned murder' and blamed the failure from the part of the police and state government in occurring such incidents in the state.
